Sofwave Skin Tightening For Face and Body

From the founders of the aesthetic industry, Sofwaveâ„¢ skin tightening brings a novel approach to this treatment by using SUPERBâ„¢ Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology.

Sofwaveâ„¢’s breakthrough technology delivers a new standard of care to aesthetic treatments, providing safe non invasive skin tightening treatments for patients at Harpe Laser and Wellness.

Sofwave treatment

How does Sofwaveâ„¢ work ?

The depth for treating wrinkles is 1.5mm in the mid-dermis. Our unique, Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam SUPERBâ„¢ technology generates heat at this exact depth in the mid-dermis. Additionally, there is an integrated cooling mechanism Sofcool â„¢ that protects the uppermost skin layer from burning.

The impacted treatment zones stimulate a healing response, called neo-collagenases, which increases and regenerates the collagen in the skin, leading to the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

Frequently Asked Questions


Today there are various energy-based technologies designed to treat facial lines and wrinkles. Aggressive options (such as lasers) can cause significant damage to the skin surface, leading to a long healing period, considerable downtime and may have a high risk of side effects. Even RF micro needling treatments, that have recently become popular, can be uncomfortable, risky and require downtime.
Gentler, non-invasive solutions (such as IPL and noninvasive RF) have shown limited efficacy, and in most cases, require multiple treatments.
Sofwaveâ„¢’s unique technology enables the controlled delivery of energy, in terms of amount and location, while protecting the skin surface with an integrated cooling mechanism. Even better, there is no downtime.

How Many Treatments Are Needed?

Typically, the treatment protocol calls for 1-2 treatments, depending on the patient’s skin condition.


As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you may feel warmness of the skin. Treatment is comfortable simply by applying a topical anesthetic cream just prior to the treatment. Following the treatment, there are no sensations and there is no need to apply special care on the skin. Daily care can be resumed immediately post treatment.


The collagen regeneration process can sometimes take up to 12 weeks, so patients are expected to see ongoing improvements in the 3-month period after their treatment.
In Sofwaveâ„¢’s clinical trials, results have been shown in as little as, post one treatment.


Sofwaveâ„¢ is a non-invasive treatment for skin tightening. Clinical trials have shown the technology to be effective and safe.
Immediately post treatment, the skin may appear slightly red with limited swelling for up to a few hours post treatment.
